Sea Waybill

What is a Sea Waybill?

A document that serves as a receipt for the freight and contract of carriage but, unlike a Bill of Lading, a sea waybill does not serve as documentation of title. The sea waybill also identifies the person authorized to receive the delivery at its identified destination, and the notify party to be contacted on arrival.
